Sonora lunch stop

Coming home from Tahoe a week ago Sat. via the back roads (Hwy 4) stopped in Sonora for lunch after not seeing much in Angels Camp or Murhpys. Parked on the main drag (Hwy 49) right in front of a bustling place called the Diamondback Grill, place was packed even though it was close to 2 PM. With no seats available we headed across the street to Alfredo's, a nice little Mexican place. Good salsa and chips, wife ordered the Carne Asada, flavorful and fork tender and loaded with meat. I had the fish tacos (red snapper I believe) that came grilled with a little guacamole on them, good portion of fresh fish but very mild flavor. Ended up sharing one then finishing off her burrito. Also shared a decent flan for dessert. Reasonable prices, around $20 incl. dessert and a Negra Modelo. Crossing back to our car I noticed another little Mexican place, Pablitos, just south of Diamondback that looked interesting, stairs leading down to what looked like a shaded patio. There may still be gold in "them thar hills".
